THE TRIO WERE POPULAR WITH FANS AS THEY GIRDED UP FOR THE 3RD PERIOD


Any time a Southern California team visits Northern California during the regular season you can expect unusual fan displays. During the playoffs, all bets are off. The most elaborate costume in the stands on Saturday night was a full bodied Shark-eating-King ensemble, complete with a blood red undershirt and Crown Royal sash. Two catering employees nearby could not keep it in as he used an arm hole to wiggle the dorsal fin.

On the way back to the parking lot after the game, two large groups of Los Angeles Kings fans intermingled with San Jose regulars. After a few good natured taunts, one Los Angeles Kings fan expressed concern for the fate of Giants fan Bryan Stow. Stow is in a medically induced coma after being beaten at the Dodgers home opener vs San Francisco. The incident has had a significant impact on all sporting events in California. A number of fans, teams and organizations have rallied around the south bay paramedic, who remains in critical condition in a medically induced coma at the USC Medical Center in Southern California. Members of the Sharks organization had visited Stow previously to express their support, Stow had worked at HP Pavilion in the past as part of the EMT support crew. Thursday in Los Angeles the team invited the family to game 4 of the playoff series.
